I am just starting out with building my first complex. I was hoping someone could help me with the calculator so i can make a good complex to produce satalites and drones for my UT's.
Basically what I do is first add the factory that produces what I want, and then add factories to support those factories (usually food) until everything is satisfied. For this you'd start by adding drone and sat factories, then add a jewellery and a massom mill. Those then need a snail farm and a scruffin farm respectively. Then because they're producing more food than needed, add a few more drone and sat factories so that it's all being used. You're left with this.
If you want it to be self sustaining, then the next step is slapping on an E-Cell loop (paying attention to the sun intensity) and sticking it in a sector with enough silicon to feed it. Silicon and Ore are the limiters on complex size as there's a finite amount of them. Refer to the various maps for well resourced sectors. You'll probably have E-Cells left over, so you can either sell the surplus or add extra copies of the first link to use it all. Or make a new product to it. Best of luck.
